Visionary teaching. Scholarly expertise. Community engagement.
Students flourish by encountering new ideas and putting those ideas to good use. In classes and collaborative research, students work with Calvin faculty to discover more about God’s world, to publish scholarship, to create art and music. The office of the provost supports students and faculty in all these endeavors, providing leadership, resources, and accountability.
